Longtime Administrative Support Specialist Phyllis Sallee is retiring from the KHSAA at the end of March after 16 years with the Association. Sallee came to the KHSAA in 1999 from the Fayette County School System’s central office, with her tenure at the KHSAA spanning three commissioners in Louis Stout, Brigid DeVries and Julian Tackett. Over the course of her many years of faithful service, Sallee reported directly to DeVries, Roland Williams, Darren Bilberry and Angela Passafiume.

“Having the opportunity to work with all of the professional people I have worked alongside and interact with the students at the championships over the years has been my favorite part,” said Sallee. “Just seeing those kids and all the championships has been what I’ve enjoyed most, as well as seeing the accomplishments of the Title IX program over the years.”

“Phyllis has been a tremendously valuable member of our staff and has served in a support capacity for several staff members during her tenure. Her work ethic is second to none, and we will certainly miss her going forward,” said Tackett. “We wish her the best of health and happiness and a great enjoyable retirement.”

The KHSAA is seeking qualified applicants to fill two positions in its office. Persons interested in applying can visit the following link for more information:
